School Program Advancing Career Education (Planning Phase).
Smith, Genevieve D.
The document reports on a cooperative effort of Greeneville City and Greene County (Tennessee) Schools to develop a comprehensive career education program for grades 7-12, titled School Program Advancing Career Education (SPACE). The document opens with SPACE's rationale, targeted toward the creation of curriculum and instruction to meet the needs and interests of students rapidly losing touch with school and dropping out. Described are the problem of a 45 percent dropout rate, the results of a dropout study, and staff attitudes toward career education based on the results of a questionnaire. Results of student interest inventories, administration of the program, orientation meetings, visits to ongoing programs, a 10-day career education workshop, and community/industry involvement also are described. Concluding sections present descriptions of cardboard carpentry, workshop instruction, and the results of a workshop evaluation. Appendixes, about one-half of the document, contain the survey questionnaire, an interest inventory for grades 7 and 8, SPACE Planning Commission objectives, SPACE visitation evaluation form, workshop participants' evaluation form, an evaluation tally sheet, a list of discussion questions, an evaluation form for industry visits, and a list of questions to ask workers.
